The B.o.S. Women’s Barbell was specifically designed for the female weightlifter.

The Women’s Barbell is slightly thinner, lighter, and shorter than our (men’s) Olympic Weightlifting Barbell — as to align closely with IWF standards.

Designed for Olympic weightlifting with the perfect amount of spin and ultra-durable construction, this bar is built to last. Weightlifting clubs, home gyms, commercial gyms, and military bases across the country have put their trust in this bar to fuel their PRs.

Why I'll love this bar

  • Upgrade the steel We upgraded the quality of the steel and the 2.0 bars have a whopping 240psi. Going with a better quality steel also decreased the weight tolerance to 1% (how close the bar is to it’s claimed weight of 15kg), as well as the bar straightness accuracy to +-.25mm (no bar is perfectly straight).
  • Upgrade the bearings With 4 needle bearings and one stainless steel bushing per sleeve this bar has the ultimate spin.

Why Choose An Olympic Weightlifting Barbell?

To begin with if you you are not doing any olympic lifts, like the clean, snatch, or clean and jerk, you are better off getting the B.o.S. powerlifting bar. If you are actively doing the olympic lifts, then a needle bearing bar is essential for these reason:

  • The Spin: A good quality Olympic Weightlifting Barbell will spin better than a standard bushing bar. This will prevent the rotational inertia of the plates from being transmitted to the bar, and your grip, which will lead to injuries.
  • The Bar Whip: The whip is the ability to store the elastic energy of the bar. Athletes can use this flexing of the bar to their advantage during a lift.
  • The Quality: The B.o.S. Olympic weightlifting bar 2.0 is designed to withstand repeated drops from overhead positions.
  • The Knurling: Most bars, and even IWF competition standard bars have knurling in the middle of the bar. As the B.o.S. bar is intended for training, this middle knurling has been remove to prevent excess wear and tear on the lifters clean position, helping to prevent injuries.
  • Hardened Crhome Finish: A hardened chrome finish strengthens the bar and to provides excellent corrosion resistance compared to a zinc or black oxide finish. The other main benefit being little to no maintenance is required for this finish unlike a zinc or oxide finish which requires regular maintenance.

IMPORTANT: While primarily intended for Olympic weightlifting, the Bells of Steel Women’s Barbell 2.0 has dual knurl marking (weightlifting and powerlifting) but does not have a centre knurl. These two key features mean that it does not meet IWF specs — instead, it’s designed for those who want an affordable training bar to perform the Olympic lifts.

Packaged with hard thick cardboard tube and an aluminium end cap to ensure your bar arrives safe and sound.

First Oly specific barbell

So far so good. One end of the barbell had a dent/scratch. Looked like the end cap fell off. Wasn’t badly damaged but still wish there wasn’t any. Spin was good as can be expected from the price point. Knurlings were pretty good. Would like it to be just slightly deeper but that’s a personal preference. Would recommend this barbell for beginners.
